I’m sue o’neil with another star smart health tip.  Today talking fish.  Lots of talk about fish containing Heart-Healthy Fat?  But which fish has the most?   fish like salmon and bluefish contain the highest amounts of heart-healthy fish oil, while pollock, herring, sardines and anchovies are other solid options. The key is to balance the benefits of a fish with its harmful mercury content. One example: Tuna steaks may be high in heart-healthy omega-3 fish oil, but they also possess more mercury, so you should consider limiting your consumption of this specific food to no more than twice a week.

Due to this, the FDA currently recommends avoiding certain seafood -- mercury-rich fish include shark, swordfish, king mackerel, and tilefish.

Several groups have been shown to be more vulnerable to the bacteria that can be found in raw fish, so it you’re pregnant (or planning to be), a child or senior, or have an impaired immune system, do not partake in sushi. However, if you don’t fall into any of the categories above, raw fish can be safe to eat.  Oh and which is better?  Frozen Versus Fresh: most  fish is “flash frozen” meaning it’s frozen right on the boat immediately after it’s caught. And are just as nutritious and nearly identical taste and texture.

Ready for Spring

I know-everyone is ready for spring this year.  I have done all my pre-spring rituals, started my seedlings in my basement.  Cleaned my basement and attic and have a big pile waiting to go to Goodwill.  Started my diet and exercise routine.  Currently experiencing my late winter cold.  And officially on the wagon to buld up my immune system.  Bet you didn't see that list coming.  Now thoughts turn to getting the garden going.  Soon I will drop the filters in the ponds so they can start cleaning themselves.  I have three bushes I want to replace with fig trees.  Don't ask me why.  I just do.  Then its berry season and time to plant tomatos.  See-don't you feel better already?

Sunshine

So I went to visit my friend in Florida.  I arrived on Thursday with plans to fly our Monday....I ended up staying a week.  I just really wanted to enjoy the nice weather a little bit longer.  Got my dose of badly needed vitamin D from the Sun and after months, finally un-hunched my shoulders.  I took a deep breath and wow felt great.  Yes it was cold when I got back, but the little warm up we had, made it just a bit more bearable.  If I can't get to Florida I'm going to Total Tan...I'll close my eyes and pretend......

Is it time to play in the garden yet?

I don't think I have ever felt air this cold.  Outside of a meat locker that is.  This is the time of year where seed catalogs arrive in the mail and I over order becasue the pictures look so pretty.  I always buy  a special variety of tomatoes called long keepers that you can store well into winter.  Then there are the sweet peas that you can plant early for some sign of life in the garden.  This year I'm ripping out a hedge and planting fig trees.  All I need is warm weather.  Guess I'll plant some seeds under grow lights to keep me going for now......

IS BETTER, REGULAR BACON OR TURKEY BACON-YES TURKEY BACON HAS LESS FAT AND SODIUM THAN THE REGULAR 
STUFF-YES TURKEY IS A LEANER MEAT THAN PORK-YOU HAVE TO BE CAREFUL OF WHAT IS ADDED TO THE TURKEY

THEY ARE OUT OF SEASON.  WHEN YOU BUY OUT OF SEASON, YOU PAY MORE FOR PRODUCE THAT HAS BEEN 
STORED OR TRANSPORTED LONG DISTANCES, WHICH USUALLY TRANSLATES TO NUTRIENT LOSS.  FROZEN FRUITS
AND VEGETABLES ARE ACTUALLY A REALLY HEALTHY CHOICE BECAUSE THEY ARE FROZEN AT PEAK RIPENESS.
LOOK FOR BRANDS WITHOUT ADDITIVES LIKE SUGAR AND STEER CLEAR OF VEGETABLES MIXED WITH SAUCES
(THINGS LIKE BUTTER OR CHEESE) IF YOU’RE ONLY OPTION IS TO BUY CANNED, PICK THE LOW SODIUM
VERSIONS FOR VEGGIES, AND FRUIT PACKED IN NATURAL JUICES, YOU CAN ALSO RINSE ALL CANNED VEGETABLES
